The high-speed, physical play in the NHL makes hockey one of the most exciting games in all of sports. Quick reflexes, hard checks, and unbelievable agility are some of the things a casual fan may see. What's not so easily seen are the more intricate strategies and tactics that are constantly being used on both offense and defense throughout the course of a game.
This deeper level of play can now be experienced by hockey fans of every level through NHL 2K6's On-The-Fly Coaching system.
Players can select four quick offensive tactics to call at anytime that include crashing the net for rebound opportunities and screening the goalie, which positions a player to specifically impede the netminder’s vision. These offensive strategies are countered with defensive On-The-Fly Coaching tactics that include clearing the net of opposing players and calling for double-team help. No game delivers the unique blend of intense hockey action with the deeper strategic decision making like NHL2K6.
